Brothers Rocky and Ross Lynch wanted to take their music to the next step, after talking on a drive to a party, they decided they would name their band after this next evolution, The Driver Era. Rocky and Ross had previously worked with others under the band name R5, and in 2018, decided to disband the band in order to move on to The Driver Era. Their music features vocals from both brothers, and mixes choral harmonies, playful lyrics, glittering guitars, and more to make evolutions in the pop genre. Each of their songs have a distinct dynamic to them, a personality all on their own, which gives The Driver Era a great formula to stay fresh, yet stylistically consistent.
Being a relatively new band, The Driver Era doesn’t have a large body of work yet, however the songs they have produced are of high quality, and care from Rocky and Ross. It all started with the release of their single Preacher Man in March of 2018. From there, they started releasing a string of singles every other month, notably Afterglow, Low, and Welcome to the End of Your Life. They compiled their singles into their first album, X, which released mid 2019. They have released five new singles outside of X, and both A Kiss and OMG Plz Don’t Come Around being popular.
The Driver Era is a refreshing look at pop music that we all need. Make sure to witness their dynamic sound live!
